English, and very occasionally French.

When I lived in England, in a typical day at work I would hear English, Punjabi/Urdu, Polish and Persian.

Well obviously not, but its not as if you can walk down the road and hear another language everyday.

I thought there were a lot of Indians and Middle Easterners in England. I guess it's just the bigger cities.

Most of the cities and towns, in fact. The only places that aren't crammed with immigrants are country villages, etc.

I've heard some Polish, but it's mostly Spanish and Portuguese that's spoken here.

English usually, but since I feel like this thread is another way of asking what other ethnic groups live around you I will go ahead and say that there are Spanish, Middle Easterners, and South Asian people.
Lots of white people,they tend to represent the overwhelming majority.

Spanish people? Don't you mean Latinos? haha. Spanish people would mean they're from Spain.

Aren't there are a lot of Koreans and Filipinos in Virginia, I think in the DC area? I'm guessing there's a certain area with a lot of them.

The usual in my area is English and French. There is also Filipino as we have many immigrants from that country and the occasional Arabic speakers as some Lebanese families own a few businesses in my town.

Since I live in a town with an air force base beside it we also get people from the military from all sorts of places, usually European as the ones I typically see are from the Netherlands.

In public, about 60% English / 40% Spanish.

I don't speak a word of Spanish, so it's one of the many reasons why I avoid fast food restaurants.

Also, are you SURE you don't know a single word? You don't know hola, amigo, gracias, the real basics?

Texas, actually. I really ought to put that on my userpage.

Bah! Another time, maybe.

I guess you got me. I knew those three and little else.

Though, I did say I don't speak a word of Spanish, and I don't.

Call me a racist if you must, but I find it disconcerting that knowledge solely of the English language is quickly becoming insufficient in some parts of the US.
